    TFA carries the burden of not being so much a mirror of the original trilogy to give away plot that I think it has deployed some trickery to give us all an Episode VIII to remember as we did when we first saw Vader say "I am your Father." This will be meaningless if Rey's father is Luke, and if somehow her Mother is Leia (which it is not). TFA intentionally holds back Captain Phasma, and plays up the pseudo sibling theory of Ren and Rey. I am predicting that even Rey will think or mistake Leia as her mother and that Phasma will kill her and then reveal she is Rey's Mother. "No, I...am your Mother!" Can you almost see it? The father possibly being Poe Dameron who had a likely tale of being thrown from the crashed tie-fighter. He is possibly under control by Phasma who is indeed the daughter of Leia and Luke! Yes, at the end of Empire, Yoda says there is another, and Leia is speculated but next we see Han and Leia re-united in Cloud City and he gazes down to her belly subtly. Yes, she had a baby and slimmed down again for her slave bikini in Jedi or it was during that time even if it's totally out that Luke is family. However, in future plot this child will never be fully confirmed as being either hers with Han or with Luke, for obvious Disney standards on incest. That baby becomes Phasma who might then lead Ben Solo down the dark path, and as Kylo Ren he has a rivalry of power with Phasma that he loses as she rises. Look for Chewie to get revenge on Ren, and get killed by Phasma in an epic surprising saber battle. Rey will then attempt to save her mother(Phasma) as Luke tried to with Vader. Also, Leia seems way too okay in being composed with Rey upon their reunion or meeting in Force Awakens to be her mother, so that further ends the sibling theory that is the fake out plot.

    This is about on-part with BB-8 being the bastard child of R2-D2 and the Death Star. You've put way too much thought into the idea that Luke and Leia shacked up.

    Yes, much thought, but my view is we never get the answer whether they did or didn't shack up, just that Christie's blonde matches Luke, and that it seems unlikely the whiny Kylo Ren and his Saber tantrums make him the core villain, more the appetizer to the reality that Phasma is waiting to surprise us all, as Rey's mother and known at least to be Leia's daughter. Disney wants the female leads to truly lead in this run, not be masked in armor so Phasma gets a big deal story as I see it.

    Too Game of thrones on which she is already a character....Phasma could be Rey's mother but she is definitely NOT the incest child of the Skywalker twins.

    Its looking like its less and less likey Rey is Han and Leia's daughter. However Im still holding on to that being the case.

    From the moment Rey made it back to the Resistance base and there was that touching moment between her and Leia, I just wanted either Rey to say 'Mother....' or Leia to say 'My daughter'. That was one of my favourite scenes. The calm of Rey and Leia embracing and then the Resistance celebrating. I thought that hug was more than just two strangers who had met for the first time embracing.

    A theory I had thought of is that maybe Leia fell pregnant and Han left on one of his missions. Due to what happened with their son Kylo Ren/Ben she didnt want the same to happen to her daughter Rey so sent her off to Jakku where nobody would find her?

    I also think that having Ben and Rey as brother and sister, personally it would make that lightsaber battle at the end of the film much more intense if they were brother and sister, again this is just my opnion, I know its not everyone elses.

    I cant help but hold on to the fact she tells BB8 that its 'Classified' where she has come from.

    That got me as well. Most of the stuff in the movies is said with a reason. Why would she say that? Unless someone needed to keep her away from some people. I wouldn't be surprised if there was someone "keeping an eye on her" on Jakku, like Ol' Ben did on Tatooine. Maybe that Unkar Plutt dude was paid some dough to keep Rey safe!?

    Just read a great story about Ben Schwartz and Bill Hader being vocal consultants for BB-8's beeps and FX.

    They mentioned Star Wars legendary sound designer BEN BURTT. 8 Letters, was the bots name a tribute to him? Hmmm...

    This came across as a jest, because BB-8 will not disclose his mission to Rey. It was sarcasm.

    there is also the striking reminder of Boba Fett, in Captain Phasma. She might have been taken from Leia as a child, and raised by Fett, to get revenge on the Jedi for killing his Father. The perfect merge of evil, a bounty hunter / Jedi in training. Rey is the only hope to stop that revenge from being completed, justifying her being hidden and for this to happen picture a long sweeping desert shot with an abrupt armored arm and hand busting out of the sand into the frame. Boba survived the pit and is seeking revenge! Skywalker never perished and neither did he!

    Ok, guys, I am not mod here is an opinion. I must write it, because it is really starting to irritate me. It's a phenomenon that just getting amplified since the release of the movie.

    What differenciates The Cantina from other boards (...) is that this is a friendly place where people can express theories, as crazy as they are, so we can either have real discussions or just have plain fun exchanging with fellow Star Wars fans.

    No theory, that you agree with, what to play with or surf upon or not, should be awarded a "Trolling" or a "Dislike".

    This is how friendly and open-minded boards become a flaming fest like some places I used to visit and now avoid.

    Be open-minded, friendly and welcoming to new and original theories and views, please... We still have many Star Wars episodes to come and the beauty of this is that there is plenty to speculate upon.

    Remember, it's a very nice time to be a Star Wars fans and we are one huge family.

    As for the theory itself, IMO, Phasma I think is meant to become some sort of a Boba Fett for this new trilogy, maybe with more meat with the role (A great actress is playing her)... I don't think she will be related to anyone but maybe a feud to finish with Finn at some point in the trilogy (A la Jabba vs Han in the OT).

    Thank you, May the Force be with you, positivism, respect and civility.

    Man I hope not, that Phasma character is the Boba Fett of this movie. The only value she added to this story was a chrome stormtrooper outfit. I hope they do not try to match the Vader reveal, because it will not work.

    I think Snoke used the force to alter Luke's physiology and concieve Rey from a distance.
    That would also explain why he's hiding because aint nobody got time for *that*.
    I think they won't go into details in the films though because see above.

    Yeah but not Force sensitive. Remember, it was Anakin that made the pear flies, not Padaname.
